Marcus Retires…

Published: 1st April 2016

1st April (and no it wasn’t an April Fools!) saw our director, Marcus Scott Russell drive off into the sunset to start his retirement.  With a wave from the window of his beloved Jag’ and his Jack Russell, Molly sat beside him Marcus’ retirement marks the end of an era.

A director for five decades, Marcus contributed humour, joie de vivre and enthusiasm.   Very much a people person he handled our walk-in customers with aplomb.

A member of the Scott Russell family, t<a href="http://www.fodstone.co blog link.uk/about/about-us/”>he saviours of the original Stone Firms company, Marcus purchased the business with our managing director, Nick Horton in 2003.  Their investment was a new beginning, a distinct turning point in the future of the business; modernisation and expansion quickly followed.

To commemorate his retirement we gifted him an original 12ft split cane fly rod.
